Shabbat shalom from Alaska!

Even though Sandi and I are now home, we spent the previous two Shabbats in Alaska. Our first Shabbat we spent in Juneau visiting our Sabbath-keeping friends there, Tim and Margaret, who kindly showed us the awesome sights of YHVH’s creation in that area. We thank them for their love and generosity.

One more thing. This is a shout-out to teens. If there are any young people reading this blog, please say hello in the comments sections of this post. Give us your first name, where you live and  a short sentence (or two) on how you love Yeshua and his Word, the Bible. You’re a blessing to us, and hearing from you is a great energizing encouragement to us older folks! Please…we want to hear from you!!

Now, for more photos of our trip north to Denali, Alaska…

I found this rose outside our Vancouver, B.C. hotel. My nose is addicted to smelling flowers and my camera is addicted to taking pictures of them!

The Forget-Me-Not is the Alaska state flower. It was in full bloom. I took this picture in Hoonah (west of Juneau).
